Hmmm.. Summer has started.... Along with the season, loads of people's life blooms... be it road side tender coconut seller or Siddhartha's coffe day or even Pepsi / coke..... of course, how can one forget Kingfisher :). Its always been interesting rather sad for me to see that people kill the tress and then hunt for the shades. Again the weather experts have warned that this year also the summer would be bad. Yeah.. Yeah.. Cut more trees, drain up the lakes, dig more borewells, build more concrete structures, it's all for the sake of "DEVELOPMENT".
How can you define something called as "development" by doing all these things? Having glass paned buildings is development ? Having Metro at the cost of thousands of oxygen cylinders, a development ? Draining up lakes in the name of property development, a development ? Cutting trees in the dense jungle to make way for an "eco-friendly resorts" !!. Is that a development ? Generating more e-waste and other non-biodegradable waste and do not know what to do with those wastes is development ? Having more money, but less peace, less green, less fresh air, less fresh water, less humanity, less sensitivity, is called development ? What are we heading towards ?
